A distinct population of normal human adrenocortical cells from adult glands spontaneously express HLA-DR, and occasionally also HLA-DQ, antigenic determinants in vivo and in vitro, as detected by immunofluorescence techniques using monoclonal antibodies on frozen tissue sections, primary cultures, and viable cell suspensions. In vivo, these antigenic… CONTINUE READING
